Before The Center For Weight Management was founded in 1989, Dr. Ed Hendricks and his wife Paula had a personal interest in weight control, both having been overweight in the past. In the early eighties, Ed and Paula decided to educate themselves in proper nutrition, and slowly changed their eating, exercising and lifestyle habits.
Friends and family noticed they had lost those extra pounds, looked better, and felt great. When everyone began asking questions and seeking advice on how they too could look and feel better, Ed and Paula decided to open an office where they could educate others as well. Their first location was in Roseville, CA. Soon the news spread of their successful weight control program, and in 1994, a second office was opened in mid-town Sacramento.
Today, Hendricks For Health at The Center for Weight Management is a thriving Obesity Medicine practice where we strive to help our patients with this very difficult illness. Difficult? It can be. Obesity and being overweight is not a self-help disease. If this illness were that simple, anyone could read one of the many thousands of books on the market today about how to lose weight and heal yourself.
From hypnosis, wiring your mouth shut, wearing a thermal body fat burner, to eating only vegetables, bacon or grains and exercising 4 hours per day, it has been tried.
We believe there are Four Elements to life-long weight control and it takes perseverance. There is no magic cure. In fact, our program does not sure obesity, but rather it is a first step towards long-term health and wellness.
Since 1989, we have been here for our patients, helping them achieve their life long goals. We can help you too Contact us.
